Equifest Nightshows

Two nights of evening entertainment will make sure your weekend at Equifest really is a celebration of all things equine.

Following two sold-out nightshows last year, Equifest will again entertain and delight crowds with two spectacular nightshows. 

Friday’s Festival of Speed

Brought to you by Fixine for Equine

Friday’s Festival of Speed, brought to you by Fixine for Equine includes pony and horse speed classes where power, accuracy and control are required. 

The grand finale of the evening is the New Zealand Barrel Racing Championship where riders race against the clock, following a course consisting of three barrels in a triangular cloverleaf pattern. 

After your first day at Equifest top it off by sitting back and watching the thrilling sport of showjumping and the speed and precision of barrel racing, both heightened by the awesome atmosphere of the indoor arena

Saturday’s Spooktacular

Brought to you by NSC – The English Saddle Co

Saturday’s Spooktacular brought to you by NSC – The English Saddle Co, will be spookier than ever. Following in the Halloween theme, Kaipati Vaulting will defy gravity with their impressive vaulting routine, while favourites Bex and Ellie will have you laughing out loud at their fun and charming antics. 

Vicki Wilson upon Daminos will perform a ridden performance sure to keep you on the edge of your seat and if you love speed the Scurrying Competition is fast, furious and skilful. Plus, it wouldn’t be an Equifest nightshow without Kelly Wilson and Showtym Moonlight who will perform their newest liberty tricks.

Equifest’s Saturday Nightshow showcases the unique skills and bond between horse and rider, and the remarkable trainability of horses and their cooperation to perform. Add in a display of frightfully fun Halloween walkabout characters and a spine-tingling fire show, the performances are sure to send a chill down your spine.
